TONY WAS MY COUSIN AND WE SPENT MANY GOOD TIMES AT NORTH BEACH ON WEEKENDS. CRABBING AND FISHING.
HE WAS A GREAT GUY AND A SUPER FRIEND. HIS SISTER AGGIE WAS THE LOCAL DIVING CHAMP AT THE POOL. WE ARE ONLY MONTHS APART AT BIRTH.

Tony was a co-captain of the high school football team at Coolidge High School in Washington D.C. He was a great player. I know because I was the other co-captain.

Dear Ginny, Mike and family,

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Tony. My deepest sympathies to all of you. I remember first meeting Tony when Mike began playing football at St John the Baptist. Tony was always there for practices and games, which carried over to Springbrook and Salsibury.

Tony was one of the good guys! I have many fond memories of Ocean City visits with all of you in days past, the laughter he had and the smile. It was very cool to reunite with both Tony and Ginny at the Wednesday night bowling league just recently.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dickie

To the family and many friends of Tony (Anthony) Coppa. With my deepest sympathy and wonderful thoughts and memories of Tony at Channel 9, he was always the most wonderful person and always doing anything he could to be helpful to make everyone and everything better! I am very proud to have known him and privileged to have been a friend of his. He will always be very special to me. He was the heart of Channel 9 and the pulse of the station. Everyone who knew him admired his outstanding values. Channel 9 was the best because people like Tony shared themselves to make that station special; and we became a team. A group of individuals working and thinking about what they could do together to be better each day!
My very best thoughts, Bruce Bookhultz, Ch 9 tech.
